“Create your day the way you want it to be.
Fill each moment with hope and excitement for the things you’ll hear and see.
Put arguments to their end,
forgive and love, make new friends.
Don’t let anything stand in the way
of enjoying the life God has given you today.
Smile at those who frown,
laugh instead of being down.
Don’t listen to the negative garbage all around.
Instead rejoice in the new life you’ve found”
I love how the poem/prose rhymes, both literally and spiritually. Yes, we are in the world but not of the world system of performance-based living based on good and evil. The thief (or our ego or false identity) came to steal our peace, kill our joy and destroy our sense of wellbeing and identity, but Jesus our true self came that we might have life more abundantly.
We can create our world free from worry, stress or fear, by remember who we are and staying in peace. Peace is the way to know and experience communion with God our true self.
